Liverpool fans react on Twitter to reported £100,000-a-week Lingard deal

By Dominic Toner

Jesse Lingard has reportedly agreed to sign a new deal with Manchester United – and Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to express their outrage at the price.

Sky Sports claim that the 24-year-old has agreed a new contract at Old Trafford and it’s set to be a four-year deal.

The report details that the academy graduate’s wages will treble to around £100,000-a-week.

Liverpool fans have been quick to mock their rivals United and feel that attacking midfielder Lingard does not deserve a new big-money deal.

Lingard developed through the United academy as a youngster and has gone on to become an important first teamer.

The England international has made 29 appearances this season across all competitions, scoring five goals and supplying three assists.

He has enjoyed a relatively good amount of game time, despite competition for places tough in Jose Mourinho’s squad.

Lingard has now made 70 senior appearances for United and his new deal suggests he is seen as an important player going forward.

However, Liverpool fans have strongly disagreed with the improved contract offer for Lingard and feel he is nowhere near good enough to earn that salary.

United supporters could point to the playmaker’s ability to make a difference in big games, with goals during the EFL Cup final, FA Cup final and Community Shield final during his career.
